La Mer Beachfront Inn
Ranked #19 of 37 Hotels in Cape May
Reviewed 14 October 2013

My family has been vacationing in Cape May for over 20 Years. In that time we have stayed at a variety of houses and hotels. Last Month we stayed at La Mer Beachfront Inn and it was the best of best. We booked a Full Ocean View Large Efficiency. It was roomy, clean, and had great view. We cooked up a pasta dinner and dined ocean front! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful upon check-in and our stay went so smooth we did not need to interface with them again. Breakfast at the restaurant was very good. We will definitely be going back next year!

A great place, right next to the beach. Excellent service, clean rooms, and good amenities. Pier House restaurant had quality food with a Greek and Mediterranean flair. The view of the beach at sunrise and sunset were spectacular.

Read the cancellation policy. You will not see this until you reserve. Requires a two week notice for no charge. A little stiff. First, if you go to the jersey shore..you know the hotels are stuck in the seventies and old and they charge a pretty penny for substandard hotels. That being said..this hotel is fairly new by local standards. The rooms feel small..big closet..too much furniture for the room..granite in bathroom and mini bar area. Furniture is pretty cheap motel furniture nothing to write home about..i would say if you can get this room for under two hundred you have a deal in Cape May. The staff...everyone here..including the restaurant is a little off..nobody seems happy nobody smiles.... They are a non smoking property..they do not make this statement prominent on their website..even outdoor areas are non smoking..Good if you don't smoke..not good if you do want to have a smoke outside. Nice TV large. Balconies are large and have better than average outdoor furniture for jersey shore, not plastic chairs. Restaurant..didn't even try the food, place was empty and the hostess says "do you have reservations?" when we said no she made this horrible face at us..we chose to go to Harry's where they are always pleasant. we watched several others come in and receive the same treatment..almost as if this place wants to be a boutique hotel but doesn't have the background to pull it off. Probably would not come back..just due to the attitude. Also as someone else said..they "upgraded" my room..really i would like to be consulted before you change my room reservation. Air conditioner comes on loudly every five seconds or so..sounds like someone knocking on the door.. Location is great, Pool is small, covered parking but you are restricted to certain parking per building..so if you want to go to restaurant you cannot park in the parking nearest there if that isn't your assigned parking..this would be ok except it was pouring rain

Room Tip: ocean view...limited probably is one of the rooms with closed in patio..will add a photo tomorrow

great service, good restaurant, beach is just across the street, pool is great to come back to, but does get a little crowded, convenient to town. trolley is fun for kids - driver was a little grumpy - so be sweet : ) two years in a row and not disappointed!

Room Tip: ocean view is a must!

From the woman on the phone who took our reservation, to the front desk staff and housekeeping staff, to our well-appointed, immaculate and comfortable room...a homerun in all ways. They have nailed it. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: If outdoor space is important, confirm you room has a balcony.

Cape May is a quiet picturesque town full of beautiful Victorian houses. If you are looking for a quiet getaway from the normal honky-tonk beach scene this is the place to go. La Mer is located outside of the city center but close enough to reach by bike, auto or a long walk. Off season rates are very low at La Mer - we paid $125.00 per night for a 2 bedroom deluxe twin. As mentioned in other reviews, rooms are spacious and are extremely clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful (forgot my toothbrush and they provided a new one along with paste for free). I also liked the free covered parking with quick easy in and out access. I did a lot of research before booking at the La Mer, and it was well worth the effort. The La Mer is an outstanding gem in a wonderful town.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean if available.

A really nice (Marriott grade hotel) hotel, right across street from ocean. Elevators, balconies, big rooms, comfortable beds, everything updated. Nice kitchenette full refrig. Parking no problem. VERY CLEAN! which is on the top of my list. New furniture on balcony. They give you beach lounge chairs, towels and umbrellas- they have their own stand on beach, they set it up for you. Also you get beach badges. Food service on beach from Pier House. Nice pool area. Price is high just like rest of Cape May but I feel its worth it. Get a side room on Pittsburg ave, balcony with ocean view.

Nice place and well maintained!!!
